Bug Bash Weekend: Chief Logan

July 22 - July 24

The annual “Bug Bash” Weekend at Chief Logan State Park Lodge is July 22-24, 2022. Naturalist Lauren Cole invites all ages to join her to learn about some fascinating wildlife commonly known as ‘bugs’. “We are not bashing or mashing anything. We are learning about arthropods, butterflies, moths, fireflies and other insects in a fun way” says Cole.

Join one or all of the ‘Bug Bash’ weekend activities at Chief Logan Lodge.
